Aspiring solo singers, rap-duos or electronic groups will be able to upload their video to The Stream online platform, where it instantly becomes available to the public. The 100 most streamed musicians will be invited to a showcase where they will perform in front of music industry bigwigs. Thirty artists will be chosen and will work with the music executives for one week. At the end of the week, each exec will choose and sign their three favorite artists. When the artists have been signed, they will compete in a weekly live show. The contestants' fate will be decided by the number of streams their performances generate. The most streamed artists stay in the competition while the least streamed risks eviction.

A stream is a body of water with surface water flowing within the bed and banks of a channel. The stream encompasses surface and groundwater fluxes that respond to geological, geomorphological, hydrological and biotic controls. Depending on its location or certain characteristics, a stream may be referred to by a variety of local or regional names. Long large streams are usually called rivers. However, even the Amazon is a stream. Streams are important as conduits in the water cycle, instruments in groundwater recharge, and corridors for fish and wildlife migration. The biological habitat in the immediate vicinity of a stream is called a riparian zone. Given the status of the ongoing Holocene extinction, streams play an important corridor role in connecting fragmented habitats and thus in conserving biodiversity. The study of streams and waterways in general is known as surface hydrology and is a core element of environmental geography.

Bar A shoal that develops in a stream as sediment is deposited as the current slows or is impeded by wave action at the confluence. Bifurcation A fork into two or more streams. Channel A depression created by constant erosion that carries the stream's flow. Confluence The point at which the two streams merge. If the two tributaries are of approximately equal size, the confluence may be called a fork. Floodplain Lands adjacent to the stream that are subject to flooding when a stream overflows its banks. Gauging station A point of demarcation along the route of a stream or river, used for reference marking or water monitoring. Headwaters The part of a stream or river proximate to its source. The word is most commonly used in the plural where there is no single point source. Knickpoint The point on a stream's profile where a sudden change in stream gradient occurs. Mouth The point at which the stream discharges, possibly via an estuary or delta, into a static body of water such as a lake or ocean. Pool A segment where the water is deeper and slower moving. Riffle A segment where the flow is shallower and more turbulent. River A large natural stream, which may be a waterway. Run A somewhat smoothly flowing segment of the stream. Source The spring from which the stream originates, or other point of origin of a stream. Spring The point at which a stream emerges from an underground course through unconsolidated sediments or through caves. A stream can, especially with caves, flow aboveground for part of its course, and underground for part of its course. Stream bed The bottom of a stream. Stream corridor Stream, its floodplains, and the transitional upland fringe Thalweg The river's longitudinal section, or the line joining the deepest point in the channel at each stage from source to mouth. Waterfall or cascade The fall of water where the stream goes over a sudden drop called a nickpoint; some nickpoints are formed by erosion when water flows over an especially resistant stratum, followed by one less so. The stream expends kinetic energy in “trying” to eliminate the nickpoint. Wetted perimeter The line on which the stream's surface meets the channel walls.
